What Would I Want To See For Rock Band DLC???

So I am sitting here checking out my Rock Band stats for my band Nova Scotia Noise (at: http://www.rockband.com/users/huskins69) and was thinking how I have over 520 songs but I have a large wish list for what I want to see at some point implemented into the game and existing music library…the range of music will vary a little as Rock Band has become a much more well rounded musical game that includes music from the Heavy Metal, Pop, Rock, Country and Hip Hop genres. I will list a few track packs by individual artists and will give a little back ground info on the artists that may be not as well known.

LORDI

Lordi is a theatrical heavy metal band from Finland that won their Eurovision talent show in 2006. The line up of the band has had some changes over the years but the lead singer (Mr. Lordi) and lead guitarist (Amen) have prevailed to this day. For Lordi I would request a 3 song pack consisting of the following:

MY HEAVEN IS YOUR HELL

BLOOD RED SANDMAN

THE DEVIL IS A LOSER

==============================================================

NIGHTWISH

Nightwish is another metal band from Finland and is currently one of the biggest bands in the world. They have finalized their line up with the addition of Marco Hietlala on bass a few years ago and added Anette Olzon on vocals to replace Tarja Turunen. Nightwish has some fantastic songs that would lend itself to the current Rock Band configuration with the added keyboards to the game play. They also have a large library of music and I would make this a “Greatest Hits” 12 song pack:


WISH I HAD AN ANGEL

NEMO

AMARANTH

BYE BYE BEAUTIFUL

OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY

SLEEPING SUN

THE ISLANDER

DARK CHEST OF WONDERS

DEAD TO THE WORLD

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

WISHMASTER

PLANET HELL

=====================================================

DELAIN

Delain is a Dutch metal band that is in the same vein as Nightwish and although they have not been around as far as their Finnish counterpart and have a smaller catalog of music, what they do have is fantastic. Their latest album April Rain have many great songs and I feel a 3 song track pack would be a great start to initiate the world to the musical stylings of Delain.


APRIL RAIN

CONTROL THE STORM

NOTHING LEFT

==================================================

KISS

KISS already has some songs in the Rock Band library but they out of the 7 songs that are available, only Rock N Roll All Nite, Strutter and Detroit Rock City are considered some of their best. I think they that should open the vault and release a 12 song “Best Of KISS” song track pack that covers the entire history of the band. Make up and Non Make up songs alike would be present in this pack of KISStory:


BETH

GOD OF THUNDER

HEAVEN’S ON FIRE

FOREVER

LICK IT UP

I WAS MADE FOR LOVING YOU

TEARS ARE FALLING

DOMINO

BLACK DIAMOND

GOD GAVE ROCK N ROLL TO YOU II

SHOUT IT OUT LOUD

LOVE GUN

========================================================

GUNS N ROSES

Everyone knows who Guns N Roses are and what the current state of the band is, and yes they have a full album for download for Rock Band already but the album is Chinese Democracy. I am not a hater of the album but I am craving to hear some classic songs from Guns N Roses, so I am proposing a 12 song track pack of their greatest hits as well that will only include the first 4 albums that they have released.


WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

SWEET CHILD O’ MINE

PATIENCE

NOVEMBER RAIN

DON’T CRY

YOU COULD BE MINE

KNOCKIN’ ON HEAVEN’S DOOR

CIVIL WAR

NIGHT TRAIN

MR. BROWNSTONE

PARADISE CITY

LIVE AND LET DIE

=========================================

HALESTORM

Halestorm is a band from Red Lion, Pennsylvania and are on the verge from breaking out. Even though they just released their debut album in 2009, their sound is very similar to the hard rock bands from the Hair Metal era of the 1980’s. Another band with a very small music library, they do however possess enough stellar music to put out a 3 song track pack.

BETTER SORRY THAN SAFE

INNOCENCE

FAMILIAR TASTE OF POISON

======================================

Now I know what you are all thinking (if anyone is actually reading this that is) “Would he pay for all of those right now if they were released tomorrow?” That is a very good question and the answer is yes in a heartbeat. I would plunk down the money right now for the chance to have those songs in Rock Band. I love music and I love the Rock Band franchise as they allow us to pursue our crazy dream of being a rock star from the safety of ridicule in our own home….well sometimes….
